While most Op art plays with perception in a much more obvious way, these cityscape illustrations by Ben Sack boast hidden and subtle twists on what is real and what isn’t.

The intricate art works are crafted using a black Staedtler pen and feature incredibly detailed views of cities that are captured from a bird’s eye view. These meticulous illustrations reveal changing perspectives when examined at close range and are will surprise their viewer with protruding or skewed imagery that appears distorted.

These cityscape illustrations by Ben Sack are sure to appeal to Op Art lovers and those with an appreciation for architecture. The art pieces are a subtle nod to iconic artist M.C. Escher who is known for his perception-blurring style.
